Every BBC member, and every birder in our state, can make a direct contribution to bird conservation by reporting observations of state-listed species through the Heritage Hub reporting system, part of the state’s Natural Heritage Program. The data collected through these observations is used in regulatory protection and habitat management and can be used as part of an effort to oppose or limit development in areas where state-listed species breed.
